I think it's another reason but I already said no features so lol
Kids prefer to draw themselves over an outline so I don't want features for more than one reason .. It's really not that tedious I know it sounds daunting but it's easy pleasy lemon squeazy as my niece says.. Won't be more than five or six illustrations per book .. I'd written those a century ago practically in 1793 and they're still in my folder :( lol

I'd do it myself if I didn't draw like a three year old believe me stick figures is all I am capable of I like and can do oil color landscape but not characters it's very difficult for me and Allah swt has mercy on the being who knows his capabities and self worth so I won't pretend to be able to do something which I can't .. :(

My drawing is horrible too...I can pretty much draw stick figures. But I would love to read your stories once they are done. ( Don't tell me I am too old for them :grumbling)

:haha: what's going on here my lovelies :)
In shaa Allah when it's completed and dressed up will let you see it and whoa sr. Endymion .. The little girl I wrote it for didn't seem particularly impressed lol but the first one especially I wrote because when she got sick she was treated so badly by a family member on a day when both her parents were working and her eyes welled up with tears but she wouldn't let it out and after they left she threw herself at my mom and sobbed and that just broke my heart even more so because I didn't expect that particular person to humiliate her that way I guess I was disappointed with many people that day and so writing it was an outlet..
In shaa Allah - Allah swt will forgive us all our short comings the ones intended and those not intended which hurt the most and could potentially land us in the most trouble for what's worse against a person than the supplication from one who has been done harm whom we don't even know of...
Anywho hopefully those who have and those who haven't can appreciate the message of the book even if it's unrelated to the original reason I wrote it :D

Subhanallah,you'll be an ideal Mommy i can tell you :D and may be little thing isn't impressed coz its more like a document to her.When it'll come in the shape of book with pictures,she'll love it and feel proud to have a aunt like you :statisfie

I'm thinking if your granny were there,she would explain it to the little girl in a more interesting way :statisfie

I know it might sound crazy but when I write stories or poetry I don't sit down and think about it the way say I do replying on a forum -- it doesn't come from my frontal lobe as such I can't predict if it will come to me again lol .. I need inspiration and the older I get 1693 and all the more difficult for inspiration to come a knocking :)))
We'll see how these do anyway in shaa Allah and take it from there it's just a hobby to write so I am not too terribly disappointed if it doesn't go anywhere you know unlike the time and investment I expended over my medical career... Life is strange isn't it? It owes you nothing though you may give it everything .. It's good to learn early though what the purpose of life is and why we are truly here ...
